Thanks so much for your wonderful stories. I arrive in Bamako December 31 for 9 weeks of solo travel through West Africa. As I'm a five-star, luxury junket, orchids and champagne sort of travel writer, this trip will be a ... trip. Thanks for the info.

Glad you found my site useful. I developed a real love/hate relationship with West Africa, but I think a lot of that was down to me missing the love of my life; travelling when you're single is so much easier than leaving half your life behind in a sobbing state at Heathrow.
But I still think back to the good times with fondness, and hey, I've been to Timbuktu. That's got to be worth a bit of heartache!
Have a wonderful trip, and thanks for taking the time to post. Nice sites, too, by the way!
